Gr 7 Up–What would you do for the people you love? Evade the authorities? Break into a secret government lab? Overthrow a corrupt and oppressive system? If you’re Leyla McQueen, the answer is yes to all of the above. Following closely behind the events of The Light at the Bottom of the World, this title tracks Leyla’s quest to rescue love-interest Ari and find a way to safeguard the amphis, all while on the run from the Blackwatch. But as Leyla gets closer to achieving her goals, she can’t help feeling as though there is something she’s forgotten. Soon, secrets are revealed that will change not only Leyla’s life but potentially all of Briton. A sequel full of intrigue and betrayal, this second series volume will be a hit with returning readers of the first book.
VERDICT This thrilling page-turner is a recommended purchase.
